C. is acting suspicious. I went away for a few days and when I came back he’d done all of the housework, including ALL of the washing. Folded and everything. Then tonight he asked “You do like sparkling white don’t you?”
My mum and sister are convinced he’s going to ask when we go away, but…well maybe :)
Thursday night’s conversation:
C: I’ve got a secret.
B: What is it, can you tell me?
C: (With that smile in his eyes) No.
B: Oh. Does Lee know?
B: Do Cindy & Steven know?
B: Does your mum know?
B: Do the people at your work know?
C: Hmm, yes most of them.
And then today he kept talking about a credit card (something which previously neither of us had) and before he left work, took some paperwork out of his bag, hid it in the spare room and told me specifically to not go looking for it!
when he’s going to ask! We’re planning a trip to Hahndorf later this year and he just told me today that’s when he’s going to do it. Excited!
In a place most unexpected-a jewellery store which looked to be well over budget. I said so specifically to the sales assistant when she greeted my sister and I at the door and she said
“Don’t ever say that, I’ve just started working here and I’ve been really surprised by what these guys are able to do.”
So I tried some rings on. I tried on a few with shoulder diamonds on the side and was just getting frustrated at how busy they all looked on. Then I tried on a regular solitaire on, didn’t mind it, but wasn’t quite individual enough for me personally. And then she took me to the window and pointed out a marquise cut ring, asking me if I liked it. I said I thought it looked nice, but wasn’t sure of what it would like on. So I tried it. And thought it suited me really well.
It may not be to everyone’s taste, but I think I’m in love again ♥
a) The jewellery store I was drooling over is so far out of our price range. They’re asking for more than the maximum Chris wants to spend on the setting :/
b) Mention that you want to try on engagement rings and it’s likely that you’ll get a special chair to sit on to do so.
c) If a store can’t work to your budget, they will ignore you until you leave. Goodbye Michael Hill.
d) Princess cut is usually cheaper than round brilliant.
e) I have tiny fingers-I’m a size H. This means basically that every ring I’ve tried on so far has been far too big and needs to be resized, if not remade. This increases costs significantly.
Drifting much towards simpler styles at the moment :) I also think I just want a plain silver band as my wedding ring. I’d actually be happy with just the one ring, but the traditionalist in the relationship wants both… ;)
that I’ve been considering :)
I have really long, thin fingers so keeping the style simple is a must for me. (Huh, the things you learn while at the jewellers…)
These are also all under $1000. Seems ridiculous that to me that couples can spend thousands and thousands on a ring. I mean, it’s a THING.
or this morning, depending on how you look at it, after Chris had come back from work and I was very much half-asleep, he asked me if I wanted to pick out a ring sometime this year!
what I’m supposed to feel. Dad has said he’s coming to stay in the city where SB and I live for a week at the end of September. So C. will meet him a lot sooner than expected if it actually goes ahead. It shall be odd to spend time with him where there is not an event which has ensured that we’re all in the same location. Ho hum.
the excitement of counting down to your wedding day. But I’ve got a few friends on Facebook and they’re counting down the days? And have been counting since the day they became engaged?? I don’t understand. It just seems..boastful to me. I really hope I don’t get like that, someone please slap me if I do.
